This is a _very_ strange problem. Nobody has erver reported this behaviour
to us (the netfilter developers).

I've never heared about it and never encountered it by myself. Sounds like
it is a configuration issue.

could you please send me the output of

iptables -t filter -L -v -n
iptables -t nat -L -v -n
iptables -t mangle -L -v -n

btw: the netfilter mailinglist is probably the more apropriate place
for discussion of netfilter related stuff. See
for subscription instructions.
